A microchip is a permanent ID that can be read by a special scanner at most vet clinics and animal shelters.
We encourage all pet owners to microchip their pets. It’s a great way for your pet to be identified and find its way home in the event it becomes lost.
A microchip is a small, permanent piece of identification that is injected under the skin between the shoulder blades of your pet (about the size of a piece of rice). This permanent ID can be read by a special scanner at most vet clinics and animal shelters. The ID number contained within the microchip is registered in your name to a national data base. If your pet is lost, the microchip will be scanned and then traced to you. If you move or give the pet away make sure to update that information with the shelter.
The cost is $20 per animal. No appointment necessary during regular business hours.
